Who Knew There Was An Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries?
And more relevantly to this blog, who knew that the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries had a position on unlocking devices? I knew neither until I got a press release this morning from Mark Carpenter at ISRI. The release states that the organization - which includes a large number of electronics refurbishers as well as component recyclers - believes that allowing consumers to unlock their devices is an important step to keeping more electronics out of landfill. As a result their organization will join in the lobbying to get changes to US copyright laws that currently prohibit or restrict unlocking electronic devices. My opinion is that as we move toward an "Internet of things" this is going to become an increasingly important fight.
